Proof of Concept: Video Embedding – Laryngoscopy Video

This is an excellent clip from Scott Weingart of Emcrit using a video laryngoscope to demonstrate the key steps of laryngoscopy.

Note he uses the bimanual laryngoscopy method (aka External Laryngeal Manipulation) where the intubator uses the right hand to manipulate the thyroid cartilage to optimise the view. However in addition to the standard bimanual method Scott also uses bimanual manipulation to aid the passage of the laryngoscope blade into the valecula. This is an interesting extension to the traditionally described bimanual method of laryngoscopy.
